    An incredible afternoon with a knowledge guide and driver to Londres, a country farm located about 35 minutes from Manuel Antonio. There were some farm animals there as well as an organic garden. We picked some vegetables from the garden before making our meal together. As I do not eat chicken, which is the planned main course, they easily substituted with fish. The meal was delicious and the company wonderful. We are so happy to have had this experience. A highlight of our trip. Recommend.

    This was a great excursion and our guide Allen (Alan?) was great. Friendly and knowledgeable. We got to go to a small farm, see animals, pick veggies, and learn to cook Costa Rican dishes. I am vegan and everything we made I could eat except for the entree, which was chicken. They were very accommodating and showed me how to make something different for my entree, called picadillo. It was delicious. Highly recommend.
